I have had the machine for approx 18 months, and now intermitantly it leaks water over the floor during it's cycle. I have removed the rear cover and cleaned out the filter, but it is still happening. I have noticed slight water streaks come from the front door seal, but on close inspection all looks ok + i cleaned the seal just in case. I still have the same problem.
I had a leak from the soap dispenser of my Hotpoint WF865. I worked out that the gloopy nature of the fabric conditioner was not allowing it to escape from the blue part of the soap tray via the siphon outlet. When additional water was injected into the soap tray, it just ran across the surface of the gloopy fabric conditioner and out of the front of the soap tray. THE CURE is simply to dilute the fabric conditioner 50:50 before putting it into the soap tray. The intermittent nature of the leak is due to sometimes not using fabric conditioner. It's also worth cleaning out the siphon part of the blue insert. We now have a leak free machine!

a contant runing of water is most likely a leak in the ice maker supply hose , an intermitant drip of water is a drip pan thats full in bottom of fridge (closest to floor ) this water comes from the auto defrost cycle most times this water evaporates away , but as fridge gets older it makes more frost that needs melted hence more water ,sometimes it over comes the pan and runs to floor , a good flashlight and getting down to look underneath usually tells you source of leak
I share your frustration with the same machine. Mine is approx 3-4 months old and within the first month i had a leak at the base of the machine which was fixed under warranty. The following month the machine started leaving water in the base of the unit after the wash cycle was complete. LG claim it is an electronic fault in the circuit board. I have refused repair and am now claiming a replacement with them. I don't feel it is acceptable for a machine that's only 3months old to give problems such as these.
If the machine is leaking then the bolt on the drum need to be tightened. you can acces them by removing the top or rear cover of the machine. If the machine is wobbling it need to be leveled or a shock absorber or spring connected to the drum has come loose or needs to be replaced
If water is leaking only during the times when it is supposed to be coming in , then the first places to check are at the hose connections and the hoses themselves. If it continues to leak after the water stops coming in , then you have to look at the drain connection and finally at the drum seal.
First the source of the leak needs to be identified. pull the machine out from under the counter and remove the left side panel exposing the blue float assembly. Turn the machine on and observe the fill cycle. if water comes out anywhere on the fill mechanism then the inlet valve needs to be replaced. once the machine has filled and begun to cycle cancel the program and drain the unit. observe closly where the leak is happening. a leak during drain usually indicated a leaking drain hose.
